This is a big two-storey terrace near trams 96 & 11 to the city – pefect for visiting Melbourne for work or fun! The house is all yours but only one bedroom is available while we are away, so it will feel roomy for you/and a friend. Pets welcome.
We love this house – it has plenty of space for relaxing or getting some work done. This listing is for the entire house while we are house-sitting elsewhere, but only one of the bedrooms is available for use by guests so we have set the listing as a one bedroom/two person suitable place.
The bedroom has a desk and chair (including the option of an ergonomic desk/office chair on wheels if needed). The house has central/hydronic heating and there is a panel in your bedroom under the desk (along with every other room in the house), ensuring that you'll never get cold in winter.
There is a backyard for you to enjoy including a hammock and outdoor table and chairs, BBQ and clothesline.
Of course like any Airbnb there will be towels and linen provided so you don't have to worry about any of that.
If you have any questions at all please just let us know! We'll be happy to explain more about the place.
You'll have access to a fully equipped kitchen, the backyard area with outdoor table and chairs, the BBQ in the garden, the outdoor laundry with washing machine, the lounge area at the front of the house including TV and couches, the bathroom which is on the second floor, and of course your bedroom on the ground floor.
There are three other rooms in the house (another bedroom, a storage room and an office) to which guests do not have access.
We will be more than happy to give you advice about transport, things to do in Melbourne, where to eat etc during your stay. We currently live in a house not far from Fitzroy North and we will be available to assist in person if anything comes up, however we're also keen that your stay isn't interrupted by the hosts too much, so we will otherwise keep out of your way!
This is an older house like any terrace in Fitzroy North, and you will notice a couple of 'works in progress' including a replastered but yet to be repainted hallway. Despite the unpainted hallway we're sure you'll feel at home!
My partner Gabby and I live in a terrace house in Fitzroy North, Melbourne. I'm a lawyer, keen photographer and love running and gliding – Gabby works in a museum and just recently finished her PhD in Australian history. We've loved using Airbnb and have had great experiences in the US and Asia staying with some wonderful hosts.
